I have to check if a file is empty and have to make the return code as zero if it is empty. I have used the following code, but the final return-code is coming as 12. I want to set the return-code to 0 if the file is empty.

Code:

//step1    EXEC PGM=ICETOOL             
//IN       DD  DSN=HLQ.EXCPTION,DISP=SHR     
//TOOLMSG  DD SYSOUT=*                                 
//DFSMSG   DD SYSOUT=*                                 
//TOOLIN   DD DSN=&LIB1(HB701S1),DISP=SHR               
//*

What does the member HB701S1 contain? Please remeber without seeing the actual sortcard no one can help.

PS: Check dfsort forum. this had been discussed earlier many times.

Salini,

The TOOLIN data set should have this control statement to get what you asked for:

Code:

COUNT FROM(IN) NOTEMPTY 


In the future, please show all of the control statements you use. We can't read your mind to figure out what's in your PDS member.
